Why is the amount of times one edits one's posting shown on the post? Not necessary, and may have other consequences.

It should be removed.

Because admins can edit your post too!

I don't mind seeing the edit notice if they do. And if the are editing, I'll assume it's not because it's a mistake in id ing a mineral. I would think it's because of uncalled for content, and therefore the member should be suspended.

The coherence of replies to threads can look a little strange if original posts are changed. Knowing some post has been edited can provide a reason for some of this. Personally I would be more inclined to totally remove the option for a person to edit their messages.
